So the latest word is that Clifton's is going to incorporate the interior from the Bahooka. Any news on this?

What a wonderful story and a great piece of history. Thanks for sharing! I'll be very excited to see pics and details once they re-open.

This was posted by LA Downtown News on Tuesday, May 20, 2014. There is nothing on the Clifton's website about an opening date in August.

CLIFTON’S RENOVATION: The restoration of the 1935 Clifton’s Cafeteria, at 648 S. Broadway, is on track for completion by the end of August, said property owner Andrew Meieran. The long-awaited renovation of the four-story building includes several eating and drinking establishments, as well as a new name: Clifton’s Cabinet of Curiosities. The first two floors will be a restored version of the classic cafeteria, serving up comfort food dishes. Other options will include a tiki bar and steakhouse-style eatery on the fourth floor, as well as a butcher, a specialty grocery and a bakery, according to the project’s website. Meieran acquired the building in 2010, but the project has seen both substantial delays and a swelling budget. The developer is now spending about $7.5 million on the renovation. At cliftonscafeteria.com.

What an incredible historical tale.
Missionary background; Integration prior to the Civil Rights era; Taking on the Chandlers and the LA Mayor's office; and assassination attempts.
